We recently experienced a hard media failure. It turns out our admin guys
have been doing backups by backing up the pgsql data directory, but not
prepping the db first.
After a restore, when I try to start the database I get "LOG: logger
shutting down" and nothing else. This is Postgres 8.1.3.
I've been on the IRC channel for a while and they referred me here. I know
that the DB wasn't backed up correctly, but is there anything I can do to
